Paris raised Chase is a composer, producer and classically trained baritone jazz crossover singer with a 3 octave range. He sings in 10 languages and has 10 years of acting, and musical theatre experience.

"I can say with confident, genuine and welcome invigoration that Chase is everything you do not expect. His semi-baritone operatic depths could deceive you into thinking you are hearing a seasoned veteran vocalist the 40 something age mark, but this rare talent is barely pushing 21". Hughie Dixon, Hayes FM radio.
"It’s been a busy life, but it’s no wonder that his music is bursting with optimism and energy despite the haunting melodic invention of You Don’t Need to Cry Anymore." "It really is a wonderful track that pulls you in and wraps itself around like you a hug from a long-missed friend." Richard Dowling, Fresh Faves Nov 8, 2016
